I am obsessed with the pink flamingo!

I blame my obsession on Target.  A few months ago, I received my weekly email from Target introducing their Pillowfort line.  When I saw their pink flamingo sheets, I fell in love. One large problem. They were already sold out of the sheets.

My sister came to my rescue. She purchased these sheets on-line as a birthday present for me.  Some days it is good to be me!

I had just begun making decisions for my guest room refresh. My plan was for the room to be shades of navy blue and gold. I quickly decided to add a touch of hot pink into the room design.

That “touch” of pink has quickly morphed into a new pink chair, pink and whitesheets, a pink lamp along with pink  art.

I decided to paint the artwork for the room myself. This wild and crazy bird was my first attempt. She was fun and colorful, but I felt something was missing. I liked her, I just didn’t love her.

I was doing a little late night browsing on my computer and came across a coffee mug with a pink flamingo on it. I knew immediately that I had to try something similar. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. I have my artwork!

My obsession didn’t stop there though.  I found this really cute wrapping paper at Michaels. I thought that it would make a great drawer liner for the guest room dresser.

My turquoise tray that I keep out by my redneck pool also needed a face lift. The face of the tray was peeling and was a mess.

A little wrapping paper along with some Mod Podge transformed that tray into a beauty!

He was sitting, patiently waiting for me to buy him right next to the check out. Half price. It was meant to be!

I can’t help buying these cute birds. They are everywhere I look lately.  You will be proud of me though as I have resisted the urge to buy more. I found a print of a pink flamingo with the caption that read: “Who you callin’ tacky?” Seems like it might be time for this girl to find a new obsession.

    You scored! I love everything that you have done! The perfectly pretty pink-a-dot chair is brilliant, as is your flamingo picture that you painted!!! Kudos to YOU.

    Ooops! Hit “post” before proofing my comment completely! It should say, “The perfectly, pink, polka-dot!”

  • Rita C at Panoply

    Ok, now that stuff is really cute. I mean really. Back 100 years ago when I was a ballerina, our ballet master used to tell us we looked like flamingos sometime – usually when he didn’t like our stance. 😉

    I love both of your pink flamingo paintings Tammy, and who knew you could buy pink flamingo sheets! I have some pillows covered in that pink polka dot fabric, just love hot pink!

    • Tammy

      I was a little surprised at the pink flamingo sheets too. I have to admit that the reason I love those silly birds may be that they are such a pretty color of pink! Have a great day!
